Ghanaian photographer and creative Nana Asomani has been listed among the best of young creatives around the world. Asomani’s photography captures the Ghanaian experience in a very surrealistic way giving the Ghanaian experience a whole new look. Photography has been part of his life since his early teens. He considered it a hobby from 2011 until 2018 when He decided to take a serious interest in it.
Nana told GUAP, “Being a naturally reserved person, photography presents me with the medium to express my unique perspective of the world. I’m inspired by my environment however the elements that inspire me to differ from environment to environment. Inspiration can come from anywhere, so I try to be open-minded, and I do not limit myself. The goal is to improve myself every step of the way. My only competition is myself because life itself is not a race but a journey. Also, I want my journey in photography to inspire others to be comfortable in their unique ways of expressing their art and self.”
